Greece's new socialist Prime Minister, Andreas Papandreou, named a string of old faces to his cabinet yesterday, calling on experienced team players rather than taking a chance on young radical firebrands, Reuter reports from Athens. Mr Papandreou, who won a landslide election victory on Sunday, named George Yennimatas as the National Economy and Finance Minister, and a veteran diplomat, Karolos Papoulias as Foreign Minister.
